Why the Sunshine Ligustrum?

A plant that brings light into allergy sufferers' lives - Sunshine Ligustrum. This bright green shrub is a sterile plant that will not produce any blooms, making this a plant that even the most allergy-sensitive person can enjoy. Plant a bunch of Sunshines together and watch as they brighten up even the darkest of corners in the landscape, you'll need sunglasses!

Traditional Asian Privets are very invasive and have been introducing themselves into the native forests and spaces of North America becoming a very invasive species. Sunshine was selected as a choice privet due to the sterility and lack of spread this plant experiences. A great plant that will be long-living and not spreading into the natural landscape to become invasive.

How to use in the landscape?

Sunshine will be lighting up your entire garden with the bright yellow-green foliage that is evergreen - more sunshine year round! Since this is a non-blooming plant, you will not have to worry about any unwanted spreading in your landscape. A fast growing and long living shrub, you'll be enjoying the bright color for many years to come. Although there is not much for fall color, the leaves do turn a slight orange tone to additional color to the bright yellow in the wintertime. A great plant to use to compliment other plants in the landscape, nothing looks bad with Sunshine by it's side!

How To Plant

This is one easy plant to grow - just plant and leave be! Sunshine is a very versatile shrub that will adapt to whatever soil it is planted in. There is no need to prune, unless you desire a specific shape and pests are not attracted to this plant at all. Once established, Sunshine is very drought tolerant.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.
